You're going to have to start paying sales tax on all of your online orders starting Monday.

The Michigan Treasury Department will start collecting the 6% tax on everything sold in the state as of October 1st.

A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision opened the door for the new policy.

The state estimates it will bring in an extra $200 million in revenue a year.

Governor Rick Snyder's administration has recommended that extra money be spent on fixing Michigan's roads.
